Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
Jan. 22, 1862. Casualty List, 1861
The propeller DUNKIRK which lay , light, alongside the dock caught fire and burned to the water's edge in an incredibly short time. The watchman, it is said, had gone up town. The MAYFLOWER was moored astern of the DUNKIRK. She also caught fire, but was finally cut loose and floated off. The DUNKIRK is a W. T. Co's boat, worth $18,000 or $20,000. We could not learn any particulars in reference to amount of loss on wharehouses or insurance.
